SUNY Oswego offers dynamic five-year programs, designed for students to earn two degrees over a five-year time frame, so you can save money and time compared to pursuing these degrees separately. Students usually decide during their junior year of undergraduate study to continue in the five-year programs, usually beginning the application process between their junior and senior years. Be sure to regularly check with your undergraduate adviser if you're interested in these programs.

At the end of this program, you will earn a master's of business administration and a BA in psychology with a minor in business administration. Psychology is highly relevant to the performance of a business. This interdisciplinary program will give you an understanding of the human cognition and business practices that will prepare you for a multitude of leadership and management positions.
